Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

In the wake of the tens of thousands of people who flooded into the Scottsdale Civic Plaza this past weekend for the Scottsdale Culinary Festival (stay tuned for Jonathan McNamara and Wynter Holden's coverage on Chow Bella today), it's time to look to the other side of summer for the next big food-centric shindig.

Six months from now, you'll be drooling for Crave Arizona, which is actually the second annual installment of the foodie event that debuted last year under the name Eats3. Check out the event's website and you'll see the countdown details down to the minute.

If last fall's event is any indication -- Jacques Pepin was there; what else do you need to know? -- Crave Arizona will certainly be one to look forward to, with cocktail parties, wine dinners, and a Grand Tasting packed with great restaurants, wineries, demos, and general merriment.

Savor Scottsdale, the Scottsdale CVB, and Food + Wine mag will sponsor the festivities on October 22 to 24.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
